Born and raised in Newnan, Georgia, Connor Heindel north to Winston-Salem, North Carolina where she attended Wake Forest University. In May of 2016, she graduated with Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology with minors in both Studio Art and Entrepreneurship.
Her abstract subject matter alludes to forms found in nature, however, she attempts to deconstruct and manipulate these conventionally beautiful forms in order to create something new. She enjoys the juxtaposition of medium, texture, color, and light. Her work pays homage to the process, where the subtleties and surprises created with fine details and expressive forms take residence within layers of paint. The cumulation of these techniques creates a complete composition.
Connor's work has been shown in various galleries in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. She could not be more thrilled to be able to bring her work back home.
